As expected of a Hilton hotel, the Society Bar at Hilton London Olympia serves an exquisite offering of cuisine so good it would be right at home in a fine dining restaurant.
Delivering British dishes with a twist, the usual carbon copies of British food have had new life breathed into them by the Society Bar’s talented team of chefs. Found on the first floor of the hotel, the Society Bar opens its doors to both hotel guests and hungry gourmets alike, and with the tastecard discount members can enjoy some sublime meals at a fantastic price.
Decorated with rich blues and plenty of plush leather chairs, the setting is just right for a particularly special lunch or an incredibly indulgent dinner with friends or family. The hotel is also found just the road from both the Kensington Olympia train and tube station, so accessing the establishment is a simple feat.
An ideal alternative to the standard nuts, the starters offered at the Society Bar make for perfect bar nibbles. Exemplary small plates include the delectable miniature Cumberland sausages, glazed with honey, the rich baked Camembert, partnered with sourdough bread and a rhubarb chutney, and the irresistible lobster and crab risotto.
For the diner seeking something more substantial, there are British classics in spades, albeit enriched with special additions, courtesy of the brilliant chefs. Noteworthy choices include the scrumptious wild mushroom and spinach pithivier, enriched with Stilton cream and seasonal vegetables, the wondrous seared duck breast, complete with sauteed cabbage, fondant potatoes and a blackberry jus, and the succulent 21 day aged 8oz sirloin steak, accompanied with a choice of delicious sauces.
Lighter options, such as refreshing salads and filling sandwiches, are also available, meaning everyone can find something to savour at the Society Bar at Hilton London Olympia.
